The Produce Aisle Is A Very Strange Place To Hear the National Anthem
Sometimes, the Meaning of Life can be found on social media.
That’s just one of the many reasons we bring you Facebook Theater each week.
We said “sometimes.”
Most other times, scrolling through our timelines can seem like one endless cry for attention (which it is), combined with some everyday occurrences that we may never have given a second thought to.
For example, we all know the protocol for what to do when the national anthem is playing at a sporing event. But what about when you’re in the supermarket holding a head of lettuce?
- Has anyone else’s grocery store ever played the national anthem while you were shopping? Mine just did and let me tell you it was a little awkward in the produce section.
- Everyone thinks their kids are normal until you’re leaving instructions for a sitter and you’re like, “do not open the applesauce pouch all the way. Open it halfway, hand it to him, and back away slowly. Also he has to sleep with 3 pacifiers and Lightning McQueen.”
- I’ve discovered I’m dealing with a traitor. I asked my 6-year old if he’d like to go to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie with me and he said he wants to go with mommy instead. I can’t decide if this is a good thing or not.
